The Good Shepherd Day School is an Episcopal, independent, college preparatory school, serving the greater Charlotte County community.
It is a Christian learning community in which religious values are fostered and students are challenged to bring forth their best efforts spiritually, academically, physically, socially and artistically.
The program, in the Episcopal tradition, is faith based, not doctrine based.
The Good Shepherd Day School strives to create an atmosphere in which students experience respect, acceptance, and affirmation as children of God.
The environment in which skills are developed is as important to the formation of the individual as the skills themselves.
A personal approach to the total development of every student encourages each to receive life as a gift and a challenge.
The school's program and its constant striving for academic excellence for all students, according to their unique gifts, become in the faith-community context, a practical social expression of this way of accepting life.
The Good Shepherd shares in the educational mission of the Episcopal Church.
What makes the Episcopal school distinctive is its climate permeated by the gospel spirit of community and love.
